Crawling on a Sunday Afternoon

Yesterday we went crawling with our Blogging Buddies from Sanibel, Lehigh and West (By God) Virginie. Gary, Tootie, Tink and the Snowbirds were joined by Kim who was visiting from the frozen north. We started out at Biddles, one of our favorite watering holes. You can't beat two for ones all day Sunday in the bar.

Mr. Snowbird chose the Baker's Dozen Oysters on the Half Shell. Apparently they threw in an extra so he actually had 14 of the slimy things! I can hardly look at them, much less swallow one. Ugh!

After lunch, we headed to another favorite watering holes, the West Wind Pool Bar. It was finally warm enough that we could sit outside and enjoy the view. Kim, of course, loved it since she is from the frozen north--or did I mention that already? We enjoyed drinks and pizza and since three of us had had recent birthdays, Tink bought us our drinks. Thanks again Tink!

And of course, when you are at a Pool Bar, you have to take a walk on the beach before you leave. No shells to speak of but Kim did get to dip her toes in the water one more time before she had to fly back to the frozen north.

From there we headed to McT's for our official Sanibel Crawl drink, the Yellow Bird. For some reason, mine tasted a bit salty. Must have been the left over salt from the Margarita I had at Biddles. Or--it was just a bit salty!! It was still good though.

I stole this picture from Tink's blog. I just wanted to show my daughter that I am wearing the shirt she gave me for my birthday and yes, I was blogging it!

Anyway, we had a great time with our Blogging Buddies and look forward to the next time. Hey guys, we have a friend coming down from the frozen north the end of February and he would love to join us. How about another crawl on March 1st??

A reason to crawl? That's like asking if we need a reason to breathe! Hell, any reason will do.

:D
